i'm with crazydave on this one, trucks are seen around here much much more than rally cars, although i have seen quite a few, trucks to me are better than the rally cars. by the way, i made a rally car out of an xmod and legoes, so im content. :smile:

Yeah, that's where I got it from, but nobody really mentioned it. Think it's really a plug and play turbo? I can't see RS selling an Xmod upgrade that requires soldering on FET pads.

The new light kits for the cars will plug into both sockets. Unlike the old ones where the under glow kit had a jack on it so the headlights could plug in the new kits don't. Also if they do the XRL with the transponders again then you can have the light kit in the car and the transponders at the same time.

Between the wheels still don't have much clearance. Can it hold all Xmods bodies like the evolution EVO? Or will it only hold truck bodies.

Can it easily be converted into a street racer (the articulation mught hamper rear street suspension tho :???: ) but can it?

I'd buy that only if it can be converted to street and back again w/ standard xmod bodies.
